Chicken thigh/leg recipes?

Hello!! OK, so I've got some chicken thighs and legs which I was just going to roast up for tea tonight but I'm thinking I'd kinda like more of a casserole/stew - anyone got any tasty recipes?

    Oooh thats shouting JERK CHICKEN!!

    Yield: About 1½ cups enough for 6 servings.


    1 onion, finely chopped
    ½ cup finely chopped spring onions (scallions/green onions)
    2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves (can use dried)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1.5 teaspoons spenda
    1 teaspoon ground Jamaican pimento (allspice)
    ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 hot pepper, finely ground
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    1 tablespoon white vinegar


    Mix together all the ingredientsin a food processor. smear onto chicken and marinate for as long as you can (overnight is best but at least 2 hours)

    Cook in oven or on grill/BBQ.

    Or, a classic but slightly modified Coq au vin... You dont need to thicken this up with roux as it traditionally calls but this can be done with any wine, even champagne (carb counts taken into account, of course)... Salt pork, mushroom, onion, garlic, splash of brandy...

    Thigh meat is EXCELLENT for making skewers. Use your favorite marinade, or season rub, simply salt, pepper and gahhhhhhhlic.

    the fat content of the thigh meat helps to keep the meat moist while being grilled...

    lat100, i love chicken thighs the best, after wings, of course, and got some skinned (bummer) and deboned at walmart. i dump them with a can of cream of mushroom soup, into the crockpot. i pile in a big handful of mushrooms, and some pepper and tarragon, maybe some other spices, depending on how i feel. cook and cook. makes a delicious "gravy," too. you can add water or cream to dilute the soup when you start it. you can also brown the thighs first in coconut oil for more roasty flavor.

    i used to eat this over egg noodles, but it's excellent over steamed broccoli slaw.
